Can I have two, please? :blush:

Assuming that’s a good tone party

Does a badtone™ party differ much?

I’m afraid that the harsh truth about that Bad Tone picture is that I was not drinking the beer, not smoking the cigarette and that was not my jacket or my sunglasses.

this is difficult

Fancy dress parties

  • Great fun
  • Go, dress up, resent it
  • Go, minimal to no effort dressing up
  • Make an excuse not to go
  • Tell the organiser you don’t want to go

I love it in theory, but I’m dreadful at sorting out an outfit/don’t want to spend loads of money for one night’s outfit. Then I end up feel really anxious that I’ve not made any effort and some people have spent years preparing their get ups. [scene missing]. a massive hangover.

i once went for the classic white-sheet-with-eyeholes ghost for a halloween party. looked really good actually coz no one ever actually does it, but then i nearly set myself on fire with a jack o lantern on the way into my mates flat. the sheet came in handy later when someone who was dressed as a devil (basically he was wearing red shorts and then painted his entire body red) passed out on the settee so i wrapped him up in the sheet so he didnt get cold

Pub golf, or any sort of structured drinking really. Including any organised bar crawl, drinking games etc.

  • Just the absolute worst
  • Somehow a different option

Theme: BBQ
Food: BBQ
Soundtrack: just some really nice music
Number of guests: 37
Location: somewhere with space for 37 people to exist in complete comfort.
Activities/other: BBQ, rounders, boozing, maybe an international fixture in a world cup on inside, to duck in and out of, but only for a few hours, making sure the kids don’t hurt themselves, laughing at kids, sending the kids home when it’s time to for a pickmeup, nibbling leftovers, sploshing, apple bobbing, political arguments, telling someone it’s time they go home and ordering them a cab, chemsex.

Different option, that involves only doing it with people who never really wanted to do it and stop around 6 pubs in and you just have a really lovely night out with good friends.
